“Taste and see that the LORD is good. How happy is the man who takes refuge in Him!” -Ps. 34:8
I woke up in the middle of the night last night with this verse intensely in my heart and mind.
I had been wondering why at times we go to church out of obligation and why at times we just go through the motions. This verse shows us why.
We’ve stopped feasting with God. It’s because we often get distracted from the one who truly matters and is worth focusing on. It’s because our distractions have led us away from remembering how much joy there is in walking closely with Jesus, seeing His glory, and praising Him with other believers. I think, when we again taste and see that the LORD is good, we will desire to worship with brothers and sisters as often as possible, and I mean truly worship!
Do you remember how joyful and excited you were when you were first saved? Do you remember how much you craved God and His word and at the same time were satisfied by Him and yet still desiring more of Him? Are you remembering that the LORD is good today?
May Jesus be worshipped among us all!
